Keywords:Web accessibility, Web standards, WCAG, database, people with visual deficits
AbstractThe report presents the technologies, tools and methods for achieving accessibility of information databases containing annotated information for people with disabilities and in particular people with visual deficits. An overview of existing web accessibility standards is made. Suggested approaches to achieving web accessibility in development of digitized information databases and software systems for processing and analyzing digitized information. The findings were used by the authors to create a model of digitalised database of physiological data.
